Asthma attacks in pregnancy: health risk for mothers and babies
Women with asthma who suffer severe symptoms while pregnant face higher risks of health problems both for themselves and their babies compared to women with well-controlled asthma, according to research published in the European Respiratory Journal. The study includes data on >100,000 pregnancies, and shows that women who experienced severe symptoms were more likely to suffer with pregnancy-induced hypertension and pre-eclampsia.
